Garrett Leight California Optical

Garrett Leight grew up sharing his parent’s (Oliver Peoples co-founders) passion for eyewear. Pretty soon, he opened his first flagship GLCO store in 2009, with each frame taking on a street name from the Venice Beach and popular Abbott-Kinney Drive shopping areas.


Since then he has been carving his own path in the eyewear world and owning the category of matte-finished, fine-profiled frames for a super cool, super fine aesthetic. Individually hand finished and using quality glass polarised lenses, classic shapes are kept fresh with interesting collaborations with other fashion labels – from Mark McNairy to Clare Vivier.


This year in 2020, Garrett Leight celebrates their 10 year anniversary. With new custom rivets and chunkier acetates to perfectly complement their finer profiles, their new releases allow their fans to grow and evolve in their eyewear choices while still maintaining that air of Cali-cool.
